Review: Bokeh Masters Kit

    Newer Older

    Strobist summary:

    SB-28, 1/16th power, fired by PW into large soft box camera left.

    Bokeh shaped with Bokeh Masters Kit

    A few months ago, Udi, over at asked me if I would be interested in taking a look at a new project he was working on. I agreed and a few days later an envelope arrived in the mail containing an early prototype of what was to become the Bokeh Masters Kit.

    Following is a run through of using the kit and the things I found that worked (and the things that didn't).

      Hey Nick. How do you make sb28 work in iTTL, CLS... just work with PW or can work it like a slave?

      Congratulations from Brazil.

      Hello, nice breakdown, I've just started following you to try and get some idea for flash lighting setups and stuff, but I have a question for you about this. I handmade a bokeh cap last year, which worked a treat for some things, but I wouldn't have been able to focus on an object in the foreground for black around the lens. Is that because the star I'd cut into the paper wasn't big enough to allow the lens a full enough view? Or something else?
